OverviewOverview

Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare is a series of third-person shooting games about the battle for supremacy between weaponised plants and attacking zombies. It's good for families because the comedic zombies and funny plant powers keep things away from pure violence.
  • Plants vs Zombies (2009) available on PC, Mac, iOS, Android and consoles. It was a static screen battle where you placed plants to fend of zombies.
  • Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare (2014) available on PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One. This took the game into a 3D world battle. A little like Call of Duty or Battlefield but without the blood and with a lot more humour (and plants).
  • Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2 (2016) available on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One. This adds split-screen multiplayer, new maps and characters.
  • Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville (2019) available on PC, PlayStation 4 Xbox One. Taking a cue from games like Overwatch, this adds more refined classes of characters: attackers, defenders, or supporters. It also adds objective-based Turf Takeover mode and the team deathmatch variant Team Vanquish.
